Louvres can be incorporated into houses and commercial buildings in a range of ways to provide additional ventilation when required. Louvres can be supplied in aluminium, timber or glass and powder coated to match the joinery.
Maximum sizes for louvre windows vary by width, height, and wind zone. Your local Nulook fabricator will be able to advise you whether a configuration is possible or contact Altus Technical support.
As a guide, louvre window panels up to 3.0m high by 0.8m wide are recommended.
Altair louvre systems are compatible with the Altus joinery systems where required.

Mullions and Transoms
Mullions and transoms are often chosen to add strength to the window to cope with higher wind loads.
A range of nine mullions and transoms ranging from flat, fins, or box back are available to accommodate style or the necessary performance strength to meet deflection requirements. Box mullions can be viewed in the SovereignSeries awning window profiles section.
Corner posts 135° and 90° are available along with 120° and 135° coupling bars.
